  • Stefan Holm: 2,30m at Nya Kilsspelen

    Season debut for both Stefan Holm (2,30m) and 19-year-old Linus Thörnblad (2,27m). Stefan cleared very, very easily, and had good attempts at 2,33m. Poor lads had to work on our national holiday!

    Looks like a smart young man getting ready to have a go. Fingers crossed. And don't anyone put any jinxes on this guy, by saying anything about 'if this' and 'hopefully that'. Just lots of 'good job Stefan' and 'keep it going Stefan'. You ALL know what I mean.

      Stefan is likely going to have an outstanding summer. Mr Consistency!

      Looks like the marks are starting to edge up early this year with Voronin jumping 2.31 and Grzegorz Sposob clearing 2.34 a couple days ago. Poland is having another jump meet in two weeks and Sposob has indicated that he feels he will better his 2.34 (which was in the rain). Purportedly, he cleared 2.34 with a minimum of 3 cm.

        Stefan Holm:s highest opening-season mark outdoors ever, and 10th-consecutive meet over 2,30m since the World Athletics Final last fall in Monaco!!! Holm states on his homepage he is nowhere close to being in top form, so that leaves me to expect that he is going to be near 2,38-2,39999 this summer - if not slightly over (don:t want to jinx the guy).

        Dietmar... check out Holm:s site for an aggregate list of his 360 lifetime performances ... very detailed, and links to a lot of the meets.

        http://www.scholm.com click the "Höjdhopp" tab, and then "Tävlingar" tab.

        Christian Olsson wants to compete in both the triple and high jump at next year:s European Championships. Meet arrangers are switching the meet schedule so that the triple jump is on the final day of competition; the high jump is in the middle of the program schedule. The meet will change from six to seven days.

          Thanks for the info! I'll check it out. Wow! If Christian starts high jumping, that could be one heck of a one, two, three punch for Sweden!
